Rockleigh Locals Continue Fight To Keep Roads Open

Locals in Rockleigh are at logger heads with the Murray Bridge Council over the proposed closure of two local roads.

Council says Steep Hill Rd and Old Murray Rd are too eroded to upgrade at this point in time, preferring to close them as they are a safety risk to drivers.

Locals say that they are used by walkers, cyclists and horse riders, and could be needed in times of emergency such as bushfires.

Council has suggested they gate the roads at either end and have them signed as fire tracks, a move supported by Callington CFS. A final decision hasn’t been reached, councilors suggesting they need to see the road for themselves.
